Listen To My Latest Podcast Episode:
When I started my online business, I noticed right away that there were some people in the industry who were clearly “the authority”. They were the magnetic ones that seemed to be everywhere.
I saw videos of them on stages at industry events, they were running facebook ads and did the circuit of podcasts. They had their funnels dialed and seemed to be connected to everyone.
I’d find myself in Facebook groups filled with more breakthrough stories of other entrepreneurs with big launches, media spots and big wins.
It was exciting, inspiring. But also, left a bit to an internal struggle. Because of every success story, I’d see 20 more of entrepreneurs frustrated or stuck (which is how I felt).
I wondered: what was it that helped some entrepreneurs break through the noise and find success while others continued to struggle in the hamster wheel of content, not making much progress?
Was it tactics or strategies that separated those who broke through from...
Today I’m sharing the audio of this virtual session with you for two reasons:
1. I’m sure you have similar questions around leveraging the power of video in your business, specifically how to show up more confidently and eloquently. The idea of putting your face on camera can feel a little overwhelming. In this session, I help demystify that for business owners who want to do video work.
2. I want you to hear what a live, engaging and effective presentation sounds like. Even if the topic doesn't resonate with you, pay attention because this is VERY meta. You get to hear a virtually speaking coach… speak virtually!
Pay attention to my engagement techniques, the nuggets of credibility and the overall flow and my energy. This is your shot to experience one of my live sessions firsthand (and for free).
In this episode we cover:
I’ve established a pretty solid work-from-home routine this last year, keeping my kids in daycare 4 days a week so I can run my online business.
But then…March 2020 happened.
Quarantine and kids are home 24/7.
What’s the right way to feel right now?
Lucky for being able to be home with my kids and still make money?
Guilty because others have had their world turned upside down and I’m still standing?
Annoyed for playing Candyland for the 97th time with my 5 year old when what I want to be doing is write?
Guilty again for thinking and writing the above?
Lonely because even though my inner circle is small, and I don’t see them often (#introvert) the thought of NOT being able to is quite depressing.
There's no right way to run a business through a pandemic. However you’re feeling, try to give yourself a heavy dose of grace.
Just focus on the things that are most important to you.
As we each figure out this new way to work, I...
Let’s pretend for a moment that you weren’t confined to your house.
With an afternoon to yourself and a hair appointment across town, you grab a triple venti white mocha from INSIDE of a Starbucks, then speed down the highway.
Tapping the wheel to a Lizzo beat, you start dreaming about the novel you’ll devour in those sweet 90 kid free minutes.
You see brake taps.
As you round the bend, you’re forced to an abrupt STOP in a sea of red tail lights.
This is more than afternoon traffic.
You hug the left left as far as you can to peek ahead…
What in the actual hell? Maps didn’t say ANYTHING about a road closure?!
Construction? An accident?
You can’t tell, but you’re certainly no longer taking this route.
But do you scream F this! I’m out! And turn around and go home?
HELL to the NO. You want need your roots done!
Siri, find me a new route.
Because when something is important and obstacles come, you reroute....
Maya Angelou said that “if you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.”
But how do you keep a positive attitude and outlook through hardship?
I bet you’ve done your share of personal development work over the years. You’ve focused on elevating your thoughts, drawing focus to solutions instead of problems, managing the spiraling rollercoaster of entrepreneurships that’s filled with many dips of fear, self doubt and uncertainty.
Whether it’s a failed launch, a client dry spell, a bad break up or heart wrenching loss, or an unforeseeable and catastrophic event, like a global economic crisis.
It's these moments that your thoughts become more powerful than ever and your attitude will change everything.
Today I’m sharing with you 5 Strategies to Protect and Maintain Your Headspace through challenging times. These are the tangible strategies that have helped me through difficult...
It’s more important now than ever for us to come together.
Connecting as people, we have to learn to communicate with others who have differing beliefs and opinions, without an agenda to persuade or convince that we are “in the right”.
What if we led with compassion and kindness?
Today I’m sharing with you 4 principals I’ve learned that have helped me show up and connect with others through challenging times. While these may be common sense, they are often not practiced, especially when it comes to communication in our virtual world.
May these simple, yet powerful principals remind us to lead with compassion.

If you’re ready to play...
Think back to an interaction you had with someone this last week that didn’t go as well as you’d hoped for. Maybe your kiddo left their legos on the hallway floor (again) and you lost your cool. You and your partner fought about money, your VA missed a date on an email campaign or a customer gave you some tough feedback.
Whatever the conversation, there’s a high chance that you didn’t show up in those moments as the best version of yourself and there are things you could have done differently.
You can’t change the past, but of course, you can learn from it.
Connection with others is the richness to our lives and business, so today I’m giving you some tools to help you show up in these critical conversations with more intentionality so that you can nurture the relationships that matter most.
I’ll introduce to you my framework for snapping out of the trance of the daily autopilot to engage in richer, more aligned...
When it comes to business (and life), the question we should continually be asking ourselves is:
Where am I going and how am I growing?
Now, I’m not shy about talking about how important personal development is to your business and I highly encourage my students and clients to invest in their development by attending live events.

You’ve probably heard that you need a signature talk if you plan to speak on a stage. It can feel a little intimidating putting together that perfect mix of inspiration, education and storytelling. But that hard work will pay off, especially when you learn to give that talk more life than the stage.
Today I’ll explain what a signature talk is and why every business owner needs one (even if they rarely speak on stage) and share five strategies that you can use to repurpose your message.
